To preface this rating: I love coconut and this beer is bursting with it. Kind of disappointing aroma and the body is generic but the flavor takes this beer to the next level. Standard porter flavors of roast and coffee but the coconut notes are integrated perfectly. Really, truly enjoyable beer, get it if you can find it on the island or the mainland.

Deep brown pour, little to no head. Strong chocolately, sweet nose. Taste follows with some coffee notes, coconut and a hoppy finish. A little of the coconut on the finish as well

A boozy dark flavoursome malty porter base with a brief brown head. Underlying vanilla sweetness and the toasted coconut coming through creating a slight roasted finish.

Ottima Porter, bella l’idea di aggiungere il cocco, ben presente sia al naso che al palato, rende la birra fresca e particolare. Una porter morbida e quasi tropicale, interessante.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Deep chestnut brown pour, medium off-head with average retention. Nose is nutty, roast, cocoa, yada yada yada (it’s a fuckin porter, man... whaddaya think the nose is gonna be like?) Mouth is medium bodied, cocoa, mildly sweet, chewy malt and roast, no detectable coconut. Average at best. Aloha means I’m buzzed and bored. Where’s Gidget at?

Can from K&L in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is toasted coconut, roasted malts. Taste is light roasty malts, good carbonation. Very thin and watery. Not as tangy as I had hoped for. Will try again NEAR THA BEACH. REALISTIC.
